- The Facts:Glenn Greenwald, Jennifer Robinson, who represents Assange legally, and Washington Post reporter Margaret Sullivan have a discussion about the persecution of Julian Assange.
- Reflect On:Why do people like Julian Assange and Edward Snowden face such a harsh backlash from Governments? If governments and elite corporations aren’t doing anything wrong, what do they have to hide? Why are the censoring so much information?
The amount of censorship of information on our planet at the moment is staggering. To be honest, the censorship along with the manipulation of peoples perception with regards to global events really took off prior to the cold war. Our world was full of propaganda then, and it’s full of propaganda now. Only today, we have seen the emergence of an Orwellian type “fact checker” that’s going around the internet and social media deleting any evidence and information that seems to contradict mainstream media narratives.
